About Lezlie

Lezlie Laws

Lezlie Laws, founder of LifeArt!

For more than four decades I have dedicated myself to the study of language, story, and spirit as they are shaped in literature and in relationships. After receiving an MA (North Texas State University) and a PhD (University of Missouri-Columbia), I embarked on a career of teaching English and directing writing programs, first at the University of Missouri, and the last 24 years at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL.Now, I turn my energies fully to my passion: the study of mind, body, and spirit and how they unite to create conscious living. The foundations of Astanga yoga infuse my living, my teaching, and my art. A student of Beryl Bender Birch and Calvin and Theresa Curameng, I hold certification in teaching Astanga yoga from the Hard and the Soft Astanga Yoga Institute.
